Packing my toothbrush and I am gone

So I decided it was time to fly

time to leave this place but don’t cry,

maybe I will come around again

maybe in your memory i will be sustained,

maybe the reasons why

don’t seem good enough but I wont lie,

I feel that at my age time is no longer on my side,

and I will die if I don’t try something new,

or we will end up being a toxic brew.

Don’t cry,

I cannot lie,

this is the hardest thing that I can do,

don’t cry,

I cannot lie,

in my heart I will always love you.

Through the years we’ve been through so much,

over time we lost our touch

and could not rediscover the bond,

we had when we were younger,

now I am older and my years are showing,

the hairs out my ears and nose keep growing,

I am turning into to my old man

I know this is hard for you to understand.

Don’t cry,

I cannot lie,

this is the hardest thing that I can do,

don’t cry,

I cannot lie,

in my heart I will always love you.

Yeah and know this, if you believe nothing else is true,

that this stuff that is causing me to leave, is not about you

it’s all about me, believe, maybe it’s a midlife crisis,

I don’t know but I got to go, that’s what my intuition is telling me,

so I must go.

So I packed my toothbrush and a change of clothes

got to travel light where ever I go,

not sure what the future will hold but all I know is,

I must go.

Don’t cry,

I cannot lie,

this is the hardest thing that I can do,

don’t cry,

I cannot lie,

in my heart I will always love you,

on and and on and on forever

you are in my heart and in my soul,

I will carry you in mind where ever I go,

there will be no other for that’s not what I need,

I need a voyage of discovery,

into unknown places,

so I can find,

something I can achieve,

so I leave the past behind,

start a new see if I can grow and one day return to you,

more useful, of more worth and learn to heal all your hurts.

Don’t cry,

I cannot lie

this is the hardest thing that I can do,

don’t cry,

I cannot lie,

in my heart I will always love you.
